Jerusalem Falls - Coming Soon...

In August, four years almost to the day after The Pict was published, I finished the last chapter of Jerusalem Falls. Edits are coming along nicely, and as they do, I grow more pleased with how the story has turned out. It's been a long road, and it felt pretty good to type that final paragraph.

I'm debating publishing the e-book edition first, and then doing the typesetting and everything else that's involved in producing the print version. Kindle and other e-book sales seem to have far surpassed the printed formats anyway, and since e-books require no typesetting, the processing time for them is much shorter.

Jerusalem Falls is far from the typical crusading Templar tale. Rather, it's a complex, epic tale of moral struggle, religious conflict, and political intrigue framed in the history and drama of those noble, crusading knights. I have a feeling it will make for an enjoyable holiday read.

Is there a date yet as to when your new book will be available? I thoroughly enjoyed The Pict and anxiously await your new novel.

I don't have a specific date yet, but Jerusalem Falls is just around the corner. I'm more than halfway finished with the final edits, and I'm hoping to finish with that in the next few weeks. I'm shooting for a pre-Christmas release.

I'm happy that you enjoyed The Pict! Thank you for your feedback.

I'll make the first announcement of Jerusalem Falls' release right here.
